Canadian Mortality rate – Death -Health – Heart disease – Cancer

 

 
It seems now also very funny to me that valid recent statistic on the number of people dying in Canada annually with cancer, heart attack, alcoholism, drug abuse, hospital acquired infections, etc are not available readily indicating that the governments don’t really care about the citizens good welfare.
 
Too many news reporters now STILL do fail to say that   half of those diagnosed with cancer now will eventually die of the disease or one of its complications, most journalists do still  like to spin the positive and prefer the  stories that ignore the hard reality of the various diseases. They are not doing anyone a service by their lies..
  
Sadly still too many lost sheep, distorters, positive spin doctors too now have even now tried to point out that  the Bible as being itself all good news, when in fact it also now  has many, many negative references as any actual Bible readers do easily  find out.
 
One of the negative facts in the Bible is that it states in the last days many of men’s hearts will fail, and sickness will plague the earth even. “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:26 KJV) 
 
Most of the spin doctors, false scribes are not too eager now to rock the politically correct boat of the supposedly established ”truths”.
 
“There’s been a tremendous growth in options available to physicians and over those last 10 years, they have  been successful in making sure the treatments that are beneficial are being used by more people,” But still not enough is being done here too. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/why-heart-attacks-often-kill-still/  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/cure-for-stress-high-blood-pressure-heart-attack/
 
Don’t get the false impression that all doctors now in Canada are motivated enough by money to help you with your  sickness and your pain. My medical services undeniably exponentially improved from my own doctor next when I had informed him I was keeping the health ministry abreast in writing next of the actual health services I was getting.
 
The health of Saskatchewan residents doesn’t measure up well against the rest of the country, says the most recent report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information. “Although, surprising some related information can be found here it is still rare.
 
Many many people in Canada, young and old  too do live daily in unresolved fears, and also do now  lack adequate sleep both issues that severely affects their personal health now too.
 
Not to downplay  the impact of specific health strategies like smoking bans and food labeling initiatives,  such polices likely do now play  a really big role in the Heart and cancer disease’s decline still now one’s unresolved negative personal stress, one’s fear of war and many other facts do affect one’ heart health clearly too. 
 
“I think we all should reinforce all  patients that just as they should be taking the medications and undergoing the procedures that are evidence-based and recommended by their physician, that next they should not fall into this false sense of security,”   “Exercising, watching their diet to ensure diabetes doesn’t come on and (watching) their cholesterol, all of those are vitally important also as important as (medical or drug) treatments.”
 
“Too many major studies of the cause of death seem to have mainly a pharmaceutical approach agenda, solution still too. With their truckloads of money, made from the top selling synthetic chemical pharmaceutical next of course.  Of note, they have correctly excluded Coumadin/Warfarin (rat poison) from their apparent analysis, since there is no credible evidence that these chemical “drugs” extend human life. This death -health study nevertheless  is just an attempt still to deceive readers into believing satins extend life, which is totally false, but very profitable.  According to a UK study statin drugs may add a total of two days to a person’s life at a cost to the Healthcare System that runs in the billions. Their only effect may be anti inflammatory, which an Aspirin will do too. When inflammation in your system goes down so does your LDL level. Basically Cholesterol does not cause heart problems, never has, never will. Basically it seems statin drugs  are not only useless but dangerous. The steady stream of pharmaceutical recalls often definitely shows, means that their claim of science is pure deception.  Their basic Obscene profit motivation has nothing good to do with really helping human health. Too many of them it seems that they are still  fraudsters  downplaying falsely eating healthy foods,  or  blood pressure control and the two most likely major heart death factors; diet and exercise. “
 
“As per diabetes type 2  nobody should have that disease and it is, in most cases when not too advanced completely curable by cutting out all refined carbs and changing back to a healthy diet of veggies and meat and fat. Yes, animal fat. Did you know that lard is for the greater part mono unsaturated fat (oleic acid, same as olive oil). “
 
I too do have to say I too still get tired of the news and medical crap I do read, the distortions, especially when it comes to the leading causes of deaths in Canada.. cancer and heart attacks are the leading causes of death supposedly.. somehow the reasons often now given for one dying seem to exclude the basics.. such as many people who get a second free disease  while in a hospital, and besides as to how many people get sick or killed due  to alcohol, unresolved negative personal stress, eating cheap, bad foods. Not just deaths due to a lack of exercise or being overweight.
 
All the health studies seem to have a false hidden agenda, sponsored by someone and are not fully honest still it seem. I have for my liking now also met  too many bad doctors and nurses in my life in reality too  Even Doctors who had abused their research grants now too.
 
The numbers of new Cancer, Heart cases and deaths are continuing to rise in many parts of Canada even. When it comes to Cancer only about 25 percent  of the deaths now are unavoidable and the balance could have been likley prevented with better education, preventative measure, applicable now to heart deaths as well, all which clearly means our governments, Health Ministers they  are not still doing enough to look after the good welfare of all Canadians these days too. Help for sick, and the dying  is insufficient still. The statistics also suggest 40% of men and 45% of Canadian women will develop cancer during their lifetime. This year, an estimated 173,800 Canadians will be diagnosed with some form of cancer, up by 2,800 over 2009; 76,200 are predicted to die from the disease, an increase of 900 compared to last year. Now prostate cancer,  is the second largest cancer killer of men, just behind lung cancer. The five-year for survival rate for all cancers combined is only 59 per cent.  An estimated 173,800 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Canada in 2010, according to the latest projections. (This does not include 75,500 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer.)   The leading cancer killer, by far, remains lung cancer, which will take an estimated 20,600 lives this year. Next is colorectal cancer (9,100 deaths), then breast cancer (5,400) and prostate cancer (4,300). 
 
“In Canada cancer is the country’s biggest killer, and one in nine women in Canada will get breast cancer.  Even Breast cancer sufferers desperately need more generous employment insurance and other benefits as they grapple with the steep economic costs of their illness, a new Canadian study concludes\nx   it’s not just the disease that can cause cause stress for women. The financial burden is also significant In an online survey of 446 cancer survivors, 44% reported using their own savings to cover medical expenses and lost income. More than one-quarter were forced into debt. As well, about one in six of those who had been employed full-time when diagnosed lost their jobs. About one-fifth were forced to go back to work before they felt ready due to financial pressure. “Many respondents were unaware of the high cost of the disease until they began to get treatment. Like many Canadians, they had assumed that public health care would cover most of their costs,” the study says. “The economic reality came as a shock.” Much of the financial burden can be attributed to the fact Employment Insurance covers only 15 weeks of the 38-week treatment. Two-thirds of respondents were off work for at least 16 weeks. Patients who had chemotherapy had the greatest drop in family income, took more time off work and were more likely to quit their jobs. While provincial governments pay for many drugs, the patient commonly pays for some others, special foods as well as medical supplies and prosthetics – such as wigs or special bras – out-of-pocket. Travel costs to obtain treatment – a particular problem for those outside cities – aren’t covered. Patients who exercise every day and eat a healthy diet while getting treated for breast cancer and prostate cancer can improve their entire health. The Breast Cancer Network’s survey estimated the average household income dropped $12,000 following diagnosis of breast cancer. In fact, the study concluded breast cancer survivors “often found the financial burden to be as stressful as the disease and that the financial impact was sometimes longer lasting than the disease itself.” The study focused solely on breast cancer, the most common cancer in women; one in nine women will get it in their lifetime. Each year, among both men and women, about 22,900 new  breast cancer  cases are diagnosed. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, but men are not immune, either. In 2009, 22700 Canadian women and 180 Canadian men were diagnosed with this form of the disease, with 5400 women and 50 men dying of it. But the network stressed that financial problems and difficulties re-entering the labour force are significant issues among sufferers of all cancers. “We would argue that many of the experiences described in this report are likely shared by the more than 700,000 Canadians living with all types of cancer. http://www.cbcn.ca/documents/Labour_Force_Re-Entry_Report_ENG_CBCN_2010.pdf
 
 Prenatal exposure to BPA, DES may boost breast cancer risk Fetuses exposed to chemicals like Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Diethylstilbestrol (DES) in the womb may have a higher risk of developing breast cancer in their adulthood, BPA is a weak estrogen and DES is a strong estrogen, yet our study shows both have a profound effect on gene expression in the mammary gland — breast — throughout life,” A review article published online May 25 in Nature Reviews Endocrinology finds that endocrine-disrupting chemicals like bisphenol A found in plastic pose cancer risk in adults. Bisphenol A is commonly present in household products including plastic bottles, reusable food containers, and food cans. “All estrogens, even ‘weak’ ones can alter the development of the breast and ultimately place adult women who were exposed to them prenatally at risk of breast cancer.” DES was also used as a growth hormone in the beef and poultry industry in the 60s. It was phased out in the late 1970s after the chemical was found to cause cancer. 

 

Final medical  care throughout the nation , the attention paid to it, and the help provided for dying at home is not up to the mark and is unacceptably deficient Canada wide too.  “A variety of benefits and services are available when a new life enters the world. We should be providing just as much support when someone is dying,”
 
Despite years of many persons complaints now, end-of-life care remains an inadequate, unacceptable  patchwork of help too often and where other related services do exist, the patients too often now are referred to palliative care much too late. . When I do read many news media accounts of the events surrounding all Canadians it seems like the news written applies to another planet, and not the one we are living on herein Canada. The news spins and desertions are grossly immoral as well. For example take the recent media spins on Cancer and on palliative care of dying patients as well  One person’s death that could be prevented and one less person  dying in pain and suffering is never to be considered as unimportant even in the overall picture. Even one person needlessly suffering an agonizing death in pains because they were not given adequate medication, pain killer is also now totally unacceptable.  There’s some real big, major gaps and inconsistencies, governmental and medical cruelty even on how one’s end-of-life care is delivered. Not only is the available   number of hospice beds and quantity of home care   insufficient, even  in the hospitals, but the problem will only get worse as more seniors, almost double the number, next  will retire within the next decade .
 
And even the professional counseling ,depression services,  end-of-life discussions are significantly missing among the medical  staff and the  families next as well. Social Services in Canada tends to be of any at at a crude, bare simple basic, pre historic, dinosaur age level.  Most families often don’t use them because they don’t know what supports are available or how to access them. Doctors and the nurses they too often tell you tell you nothing of what you  do need to know still. Too many persons will die first while waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home.  Too many sick persons die waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home. Imagine this cruelty, absurdity now as well an overnight palliative care was being stopped because it  exceeded the two-week limit in place.  Now it’s a disgrace that anyone ox subjected to  this during their final days. Many many persons now would in Canada still benefit from a decent end-of-life care but often still don’t get it, in our rather still uncivilized society. Inadequate Services Offered for  “End-of-life”, No Improvement Even  Years  After.  The  special Senate committee had reported uneven access to palliative care in 1995 and a 2005 follow up found little progress now in Canada showing us all how little our politicians do really care about others death, pain, suffering in reality. Mostly lying Health Ministers  say they now are  doing everything they can to help ensure excellence in cancer care for all.. No one should be foolish enough to believe this at any time too. In reality the way the end-of-life care, seniors cares are  now being  delivered clearly shows that there is a need of real federal and provincial management and adequate regulations. 
“It is absolutely OFFENSIVE that the government is still feeding off cigarette tax dollars while making marijuana illegal.  My mother is dying slowly from cancer because of cigarette smoking. All my childhood friends have someone in the family who has died in a similar horrible fashion. When will the Canadian government do what is morally right and make cigarettes illegal? The government makes roughly 6-7 billion dollars in taxing tobacco. Not to mention sales and service taxes.   That money supposedly  goes towards our healthcare as well.”
 
 “What is the correlation between the incidence of high blood pressure and high personal indebtedness in this country?” ”  Did the Canadian causes of death study  take into account how many people had moved to Alberta but died of heart attacks once they saw the cost of LIVING housing and health care in reality once they arrived there?”
 
Notice the spin doctors do not deal truthfully or specially with how many people who have been diagnosed with serious heart problems got treated within 6 months to 2 years at the most and why was that? Reality heart treatment is done at major hospitals only who do not get paid on a per patient basis, but only get an annual budget to work with, a budget which varies with each city,  province now too, so they firstly do not treat all the serious heart patients.

Heart attack rates vary by province, researchers find  Globe and Mail -When it comes to heart attacks, where you live and how much you earn seem to matter more than how you live.

Those with low incomes have high heart attack risk Toronto Sun The report, Health indicators 2010, says 67,000 Canadians were hospitalized for a heart attack in 2008-09 Breaking down the population into five income levels, the study found that Canadians living in the least affluent neighborhoods were 37% more likely to suffer a heart attack than those in more affluent areas. Heart attack patients from richer neighborhoods were 7% more likely to get a revascularization procedure, such as angioplasty or bypass surgery, than those from lower-income areas. “While a person’s socio-economic status affects the risk of having a heart attack, it appears that where you live in Canada makes a bigger difference,” Eugene Wen, manager of health indicators at CIHI, said. “Regions with higher heart attack rates also tend to have higher rates of hypertension, diabetes, smoking and other cardiac risk factors.”

In B.C., the heart-attack rate was 169 for every 100,000 people, said a report, which used data from 2008 and 2009. In Newfoundland and Labrador, it was 347 for every 100,000 people. Heart attack rates highest in Newfoundland and Labrador: The same province  where the premier himself did not do his best to improve health care for all. “,it’s surprising and concerning that depending on where you live in Canada, your risk for heart attack is different,”  “If you can’t afford to buy healthy and nutritious foods, your risk factors for heart attack are more common,”   “If you don’t have the time or the funds to make a healthy (food) choice, that’s a problem. .  This report suggests that it does translate into an increased risk for heart attack.” The federal government and the provinces now needs to legislate policies aimed at encouraging healthy eating, adequate medical care so that they reach all Canadians.

“Is it possible that the majority of heart deaths in Canada are caused by one virus or another, Virus spread from infected animals, gum diseases, etc., ? Why is here  too no mention of this by our news media or medical community? Does the medical community basically still not want to tell you how these viruses are caused, spread? I think, they know, a lot more then they are telling, or the media is telling. Although, surprising some related information can be found here it is still rare. “
 
Let’s first be fair to ourselves and others and note that no one thing specifically causes all the cancers, diabetic sick persons, heart problems in the world, rather it is a combination of several different factors starting with our personal ignorance, and the false neglect of the our Bodies.
   
To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of their sicknesses too.. including their stress, anxieties, their wrong doings too. Hypertension is another  main, leading personal cause of heart attacks, strokes and other major medical problems. For most North Americans even if you don’t have high blood pressure now, you need to make a serious lifestyle, food  adjustments now to avoid personal health problems, especially Cancer and Heart diseases next in one’s future. A person is considered hypertensive with a blood-pressure reading of 140/90 millimetres of mercury (mmHg) or higher. Healthy adults should have a blood pressure in the range of 120/80 mmHg, although that target varies with age and other health conditions. There are many DIFFERENT factors that contribute to high blood pressure, including first the type of one’s food consumption, too much read meat, not enough fruit and vegetables,  being overweight, a lack of physical activity, excessive sodium consumption and aging. Hypertension, while it has few obvious symptoms, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
 
While clearly the medical advances against even the more serious sickness have taken gigantic leaps now these days, I sadly too often these  days have to tell the truth to the sick persons that next the patients themselves are now more often to blame for their sudden deaths,  their illness degenerating mostly too even by reaping what they sowed, by their own neglect of basic laws reaping relating to the to human anatomy too, a) by their own failure to insure  healthy eating, b) their own  failure to get  proper sleep, c) and their own failure to handle, resolve unbeneficial stress adequately.
 
 Many people do not understand also what a  depression or a mid life crisis is.. it is that void,, the emptiness that you do have when you lost somethinng that once was important to you.. solution to depressions are good music, good sleep, good food, having good friends and not rather bad ones.
 
Majority of patients still lie to themselves when they do now falsely think they will not reap what they have personally sowed and thus they are committing personal suicide as a result. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/she-was-selfish-self-absorbed-self-centered/
 
 Lack of sleep is still a killer.. so is not eating properly.. so is unresolved stress…
 
God is a God of love and he really does not want us to suffer needlessly so he is willing to help us if we meet his conditions as defined also  in the Bible. (1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
 
 Absurd TD health study calls for health  new health tax. To focus medical practitioners on the most effective treatments, it says the province should set up a “commission on quality and value for health care.” It would assess the best and most cost-effective medical treatments for specific conditions, and evaluate new drugs and treatments, and let medical practitioners know the results says TD’s chief economist, Don Drummond. The TD report also says doctors should be paid differently, getting a blend of salary and payment for the volume of patients and treatments.  Public health care is unsustainable if spending continues unchecked, Left unchecked, health-care spending is set to rise to 80 per cent of total program spending.  Here is the important main root, real problem the same report does not face firstly. In reality the  Doctors are God. You cannot touch them or deal with them. The medical society itself forbids the criticism of any doctor, by any doctor or anyone else for that matter. for only lenthly self regulation can review any criticism of a bad doctors performances. The same fact generally applies to the unionized  nurse and hospital workers and so no work improvement, cost effectiveness can be attained,   thus having any possible effective cost or quality supervisors is also impossible. Our medical services always tend to be unsupervised, uncontrolled  with about 50 percent of the existing workers being pretentious, incompetent, inadequate, and so of course putting more money into a pail full of holes like this is an ever increasing  waste of money.  Solution? a cheap one too, Do merely  start the exposure exemplary firing all bad doctors, bad nurses, bad civil and bad public servants as well.   Start firing the bad hospital managers.   http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/
 
The largest contract in Montreal, in the city’s history was fraught by a lack of supervision of contracts at city hall, and ethically questionable relations between former city officials and companies seeking deals. After Montreal’s auditor-general confirmed the paper’s findings, Mayor GÈrald Tremblay cancelled the deal and two top city officials were fired
 
Interesting points, questions, concerns now too.
